A trail of reactions has followed CNBC's "Mad Money" host Jim Cramer's criticism of cryptocurrencies, including Dogecoin, which he called a "con."

In the wake of this, Dogecoin Core developer Michi Lumin has taken to Twitter to correct the misinformation about Dogecoin.

In a thread of tweets, the Dogecoin developer posited that Jim Cramer was misinformed or willfully incorrect about Dogecoin.

According to Lumin, for something to qualify as a "scam" or a "con," it must have both a mark and a beneficiary. Dogecoin, by the rules of its code, cannot work as a scam or con because it lacks a beneficiary and is not "run" by a "company" or a body.

She continues by saying that Dogecoin never had "a developer premine" and that there is no magic button or special allotment of the cryptocurrency to developers.

Anyone can run a node on the Dogecoin network, which is "controlled" by the network of nodes through which it runs.

Dogecoin nodes operate using a decentralized consensus method to prevent malevolent actors from taking control of the network.

As reported by U.Today, Alex Valaitis, founder of W3T, believes that Dogecoin remains among the most misunderstood cryptocurrencies in the space. He made these deductions from his latest research.

Dogecoin, now the eighth largest cryptocurrency in terms of market valuation, is the second largest POW blockchain after Bitcoin.

Nearly 5 billion new DOGE are mined each year, with a current circulating supply of 133 billion DOGE.
